This pleasant agricultural town and summer resort is situated just south of Half Moon Bay, 38 miles from San Francisco, by coastline, and 38 miles from Santa Cruz.  It is approached on either side by stages which connect with the several railroad systems at Santa Cruz, and with the S. P. R. R. at San Mateo.  Through fare from Santa Cruz to San Francisco, the old Pescadero and Half Moon Bay, $5.  The delightful situation of Pescadero and its equable climate makes the place popular, and those who go there to spend a few days seldom go away again as soon as they originally intended.  The Swanton House, suggestive of the finest Eastern resorts in its splendid accommodations, ranks with them in all particulars.  The house stands in the center of the little town, and is surrounded by tastefully-arranged grounds and detached cottages, intended for the accommodation of families.  The main building contains well-aired and lighted rooms, parlors, closets and every convenience that a consideration of the comfort of guests can suggest.
